Jason Nuyens's Avatar + Posted by Jason Nuyens on Apr 30, 2014

It took well until adulthood to see the creation of the development superforce now known as Breakfall, but we build games on the basis of certain shared common experiences. It was true for the whole team that games were a huge part of our everyday lives as we grew up. Games were a primary source of entertainment, but we also share the common experience of using games as a focal point for our young, proto-nerd social lives.

Apotheon Coming to PS4

Looking back, making our upcoming action sidescroller Apotheon in the visage of ancient Greek pottery seemed like an obvious choice. Everything is already there. The 2D perspective, the awesome narrative and setting possibilities, heroes fighting monsters and magical goat-men with no pants… All we really had to do was figure out how to make the art on those pots move around and make it into an interesting game.

When we began developing Source, we set out to create something completely new and unique, yet deeply versed in the classic Metroidvania adventure game style. To us, a Metroidvania is a special kind of adventure game that has a few main components that need to be just right. First off, there needs to be an expansive, mysterious world to explore. Second, there should be permanent upgrades that are vital to your character’s advancement and survival.

I’m glad I didn’t go with my original opening paragraph for this post. It just enumerated the reasons Escape Goat 2 sets itself apart from other puzzle platformers out there. I’ve shown the game to so many people that the shtick is burned in my mind. And ultimately, it’s impossible to describe, because the fun of Escape Goat is intangible.

Danielle Riendeau from Polygon put it in the most flattering terms: “Escape Goat 2 made me feel brilliant.”

Drifter Coming to PS4 and PS Vita

Colin Walsh's Avatar + Posted by Colin Walsh on Apr 30, 2014

While growing up I was always fascinated by space exploration and I was especially fond of the many video games set in space such as Frontier, Starflight, and Privateer. In fact, it’s long been a dream of mine to take all of what I enjoyed about those sorts of games and try and create my own game in the genre. Drifter is that game, and now I’m happy to say that another dream of mine is being fulfilled now that Drifter is coming to PS4 and PS Vita.
